I'll be there, looking forward to it.

Rich, there was another "Survive the 25" documentary made for 2016 and it's currently airing every Tuesday on MavTV. My cable service doesn't offer that channel so I haven't been able to catch it... if anyone's got it, be a gent and upload it as an unlisted video to youtube please.

Good guess is that the Ginetta G57s will be the fastest cars overall but if they break then the Flying Lizard Audi R8 will be there to pick up the scraps.

I got that e-mail too.
http://myemail.constantcontact.com/F...id=Qxr4_dzv3Co
All sorts of cool drivers in the Lizard lineup.
#45 Audi GT3: Darren Law, Nate Stacy, Charlie Hayes, Tom Haacker
#74 Porsche GT4: Johannes Van Overbeek, Mike, Craig Watkins, Ross Thompson
Cool to see they have Craig Watkins in the Porsche. The Kussmaul Chronicles book he wrote is awesome.

http://nasportscar.com/competition-m...f-thunderhill/

Pretty impressive lineup in Competition Motorsports' Porsche GT3 Cup car too.
#73 Porsche: Preston Calvert, Michael Lewis, Andrew Davis, Kurt Rezzetano

Some serious speed there.

Well done Mike.

Out of interest, what car classes have you driven? GT3, GTE and now GT4? Anything else fun?

Thanks! Hmm... I've raced 997 and 991 Porsche Cup's, a Spec E30 BMW, Maserati Trofeo, Ferrari Challenge (458), Rolex GT spec Ferrari and Porsche, FIA GT3, original World Challenge spec GT3 Audi (not full FIA GT3), LMPC, LMP3, old Conti spec GS (before GT4) and GTE. I think that's all at the moment.

Btw, it looks like NASA just published the Survive the 25 from 2016 on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uo0Et2HZ2V0

Great quality video and production. They did a beautiful job on it.. (not just because we won. :P)!
